I liked the modest title of Weigel's bio of Benedict, "God's Choice."

The two decisions are certainly mutually exclusive, but it's possible to learn from experience. I think it's pretty clear Benedict is right on this one. As a member of the inner circle during John Paul's long decline he knows exactly how bad it can get when the Pope can no longer function, and with today's health care an incapacitated Pope can last a long time.

Weigel is clearly a papal hero-worshiper. He's what passes for a "Catholic intellectual" these days.
